Work Hard on the Things You can Control
There are Opportunities Ahead
If your business has taken a hit during the current situation, you’re probably wondering how you’re going to recover. History teaches us that even though it sometimes takes a while, there’s ALWAYS a recovery. The Great Depression, the Second World War, the Dotcom bubble, the global financial crisis in 2008 – they’ve all been followed by a return to some form of normality.
What Can You Do?
Right now, the worst thing you can do is hibernate. The best thing you can do is plan. You’ll need:
- A plan for your business cashflow for the next 90 days at least
- A plan for how you can take advantage of government help
- A plan for how your products and services can adapt, now and after this is all over
- A plan for how your marketing voice and tone will change as we emerge from lockdown
Where will you start?
First, you need some clarity about what you need to do and where you need to go to recover effectively from the disruption.
Second, you’l need laser focus on the important things – it’s so easy to be distracted by the tsunami of information right now.
Third, you’ll need to take action – sometimes, you can be paralysed by the choices you face and nothing gets done.

"Great opportunity to be at two workshops/seminars in the last couple of weeks led by action coach Garry Crosby.
A real professional and master of his craft; I experienced lots to stimulate my thinking."Julian Bright - Bright Insight Ltd
Recently I attended Garry's Growth Club and mapped out my 90 day plan based on the theories and systems Garry suggested. I am 2 months into that plan and my business couldn't be in better shape moving forward.John Sinclair - Loman Miller Associates Ltd
"Where would you like me to leave a glowing review for yesterday?...I thought you delivered the day fantastically...Great to create a deliverable action plan."Peter Rushmer - Flagship Trucks Ltd
"The real takeaway was that I need to start thinking like a business owner, rather than as an individual. I learned loads and loads and loads!"Bev Thorogood, Floresco Training
Garry is an absolutely fantastic coach! Spending time with him has meant that I am now thinking completely differently about my business.Katie Lane
The coaching session with Garry was fantastic! His coaching style has encouraged me to reflect upon and evaluate my current practices and consider ways to further develop my business in the future. Thank you so much for a fantastic session. Highly recommended.Suzanne Heaven, Heaven's Homebaked Cakes
I just want to say Garry has helped me massively over the last 3 months, I have found his sessions, very professional and insightful. He has aided me in making some rather large decisions and been great to hold me accountable and wonderful to have someone on your side, offering advice. Highly recommendDeborah Moulson, CareerJuice Recruitment
We had a fantastic Planning Afternoon with Garry last week. Professional, personable and approachable with an extremely vast range of business knowledge - who knew there was so much to know about a Post-It note. Mind blown! Garry, thank you for challenging us all in a way that seriously got us thinking about various aspects of business growth and how to implement various strategies. I look forward to working with you again in the near future!Alice Manby - Talkspace Group
I am so glad I found Garry - I was preparing to launch a new business, and a little unsure of whether I was on the right track. I decided to look into finding a business coach, and couldn’t have found a better one.
Garry really took the time to understand where I was trying to go.
His strategic insight was invaluable; he could always ask exactly the right question to get me to go down the right path (and make me think it was my idea!).
I never felt like I was asking a ‘stupid question’, even though I’m sure some of them were, and I really felt like he cared about the outcomes for my business.
Thanks to his support and guidance, I have now launched a programme that broke even after just 7 days, and continues to grow. I am confident that my plan for the business will stand the test of these early years, because we have planned for everything!
Working with Gary was undoubtedly one of the best decisions I’ve made for my business.Emily Hughes, Parents Guide to GCSE
The coaching sessions with Garry have been hugely beneficial, especially in relation to how I think of my business in terms of growth. I can now move forward with a better idea of how to evaluate profitability and how to use my strengths more effectively. Thank you Garry and I am looking forward to attending the Quarterly GrowthCLUB planning workshops.Mary Vincent, Willow Tree Gin
